Hey everyone! It’s Nick from The Cinematic Katzenjammer. This is the first time I’m hosting the Director’s Chair feature here at The LAMB. While I don’t plan on changing things up a lot, I did want to implement a couple of new things for the Director’s Chair feature. Keep reading to find out more. 

Along with any movie reviews you send in, concerning the director of the month, I would ask you include a score out of five for the film, similar to what you would do for the LAMBScores feature. This way, after the end of each month, I can come up with an average “score” for the director, and we can compare him/her to those of the past. It’s a small addition, but I see that it may prove rather interesting to compare results. I also will now include original images or videos related to the director. Had you found someone’s work so inspiring you wanted to put together a montage of scenes from their films? Or even watched something and needed to draw a picture. All is welcome. As are other works of art, from poems to stories, if it is indeed related to the director. 

For my first month, I wanted to focus on Darren Aronofsky, a man who’s been working for fourteen years, but has only had a handful of films seen by the majority of the public. He’s an artist in his craft, and his films are both visceral and emotional on levels you don’t see every day.

Now for those of you who have never participated in this event before I would like to present the basic list of instructions and rules for participation in the series. The golden guideline would be that all participants must be a current member of the LAMBs or at least on the waiting list for approval to become a member. The second guideline of participation in the series would be for everyone to write and publish an article about the candidate who has been selected for the event. The focus of every article must stay within the arena of the person’s career as a movie director. The third and final item on the list of guidelines is an uncompromising rule of meeting the deadline for submission. Every article that you would like to submit for the event must be e-mailed to Nick Powell [ If you would like to submit an article that you published a couple of months or years ago I will accept them for participation in the event. Make sure to include a direct URL link to every article that you would like to submit. There is no minimum or maximum number of articles that can be submitted.

I only ask that you send me links to articles already published. Nothing is published in this article by itself, as it really is just a gateway to a bunch of different links.

Feel free to use any of these images on your blog to support the month’s feature.
